An international team of researchers have created remote controlled nanobots from a biodegradable material that they believe could assist doctors in diagnosing diseases and delivering drugs to target sites.
Using titanate nanowires treated with cerebrolysin, researchers have been able to target delivery to the brain and through the central nervous system. Researchers report the use of nanowires to deliver drugs could be beneficial in the treatment of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Using a system dubbed μRobotex system, researchers have created a microhouse so small a mite can not fit through the front door. Researchers say the creation pushes forward the frontiers of optical nanotechnologies.
New research would help emergency care workers and battlefield medics stabilize blood flow in the brains of traumatic injury victims. Researchers developed a nanoparticle-based antioxidant that quickly quenches free radicals that interfere with regulation of the brain’s vascular system.
